Wonderful story, beautifully told. It was easy to picture the players, the sets, and the experiences the characters were having. The solid, funny, clever story told marvelously by fabulous reader/actors. I highly recommend it!

It’s been a long time since Jesse Stone left L.A., and still longer since the tragic injury that ruined his chances for a major league baseball career. When Jesse is invited to a reunion of his old Triple-A team at a hip New York City hotel, he is forced to grapple with his memories and regrets over what might have been. He left more behind him than unresolved feelings about the play that ended his baseball career. The darkly sensuous Kayla, his former girlfriend and current wife of an old teammate is there in New York...

I was very excited to listen to the Jesse Stone series when I found them on Audible. Tom Selleck's "Jesse Stone" was a wonderful strong, silent type. That did not come across here. I realize differences are common between books and movies, but not so much as to make you "dislike" the book's version.
The writing was stilted and predictable as well as dated. Only the female characters were described well, and that was in a limited fashion. The male characters may have had one of two descriptive words used once in a while, but the dearth of adjectives for the men in this was telling.
I had planned to rent ALL the Jesse Stone books here on Audible. This will be the only one.

Life as a ship's boy aboard HMS Dolphin is a dream come true for Jacky Faber. Gone are the days of scavenging for food and fighting for survival on the streets of 18th-century London. Instead, Jacky is becoming a skilled and respected sailor as the crew pursues pirates on the high seas. There's only one problem: Jacky is a girl. And she will have to use every bit of her spirit, wit, and courage to keep the crew from discovering her secret.

I wish I had been able to read this when I was about 10 or so. Alas, it had not been written yet. This character lives within me, as I am certain it does within many others.
Katherine Kellgren will long be THE voice for Jacky, but L.A. Meyer created the voice of the willful, strong, courageous pirate inside me. Thank you L.A. Meyer for creating these books, Thank you Katherine for reading them so brilliantly, and Thank you AUDIBLE for making them available for me to read over and over and over again.

Davina Porter's voice is now like a balm that soothes my nerves. The characters in these books are friends and people I wish I were related to. That says it all for me right now.
